Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Apple Chips)

Hello again everyone and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. Today I bring you a simple, easy to make, recipe for Apple Chips. I’m a big fan of my food dehydrator and I often will make my own beef jerky or fruit chips. However, some people don’t have a food dehydrator so I wanted to share this simple recipe that you can use to make your own apple chips using your oven. There are a couple of tips here I can give you first before you start in on making these. First, be sure to spray your pan or use parchment paper or the apple will stick and you will have wasted your time. Second, I recommend using a mandolin slicer or slicing attachment on a food processor to cut your apples so you get a consistent thickness and they all finish at the same time. Lastly, the apples will not feel crispy until they cool down so don’t keep them in the oven longer than they need just because you think they’re not done. Timing doesn’t have to be precise but you definitely don’t want to burn them. If your oven won’t go down to 225 degrees, use the lowest temp you can and adjust your timing accordingly. Sneak these into your kid’s or significant other’s lunch to give them a nice healthy treat. As always, feel free to post comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already so you don’t miss a single post.

Apple Chips

  • 2 Golden Delicious Apples, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 tsp White Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1. Preheat your oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).
2. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a zip lock bag; add the apple slices to the bag, seal, and shake to coat the apple slices. (Use more sugar and cinnamon if necessary.)
3. Arrange the apples slices on a metal baking sheet that has either been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray or lined with parchment paper.
4. Bake the apples in the preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour then flip them over and continue to bake until they are dried and the edges curl up, about 45 minutes to 1 hour more.
5. Transfer the apple chips to a wire rack until cooled and crispy.
